The Yoyo app now eliminates the need to carry cash and loyalty stamp cards.
The app, which is also rolling out at the Universities of Greenwich, Westminster and with high street retail chains Fernandez & Wells and Hummus Brothers, will soon be available at a total of 62 retail outlets across the capital. Yoyo are also launching at Brunel University, The University of Bedfordshire and The University of Essex as well as a number of other retailers.
By September, the app will be available to more than 140,000 students and staff in England, and is currently handling an average of 30,000 transactions per month across Imperial College London’s outlets alone.
Jemma Morris, Head of Catering Operations at Imperial College London said: “The cafes and restaurants on campus can get really busy during lunchtime and we are always looking for ways to speed up transactions and improve the service we offer to staff and students. We were particularly impressed with the speed and simplicity of Yoyo, and are pleased that there has been such a positive reaction to the app by both staff and students.’
